strategy. harris? >> after what i guess you could call a rather bumpy confirmation hearing to say the least what are hagel's chances at this point? >> as it stands at least 12 republicans plan to vote against hagel, his confirmation even though he is a republican himself. only two said they would vote for him at this point. they are mike johan of nebraska and cochran of mississippi. many are predicting hagel will be confirmed. >> i think for a cabinet office 51 votes is generally considered the right standard for the senate to set. and at that level i think he makes it but doesn't make it with a lot of room to spare. >> senator blunt is among those planning to vote against hagel siting too many inconsistencies. >> you know steve with that margin he mentioned the 51 votes you wouldn't need very many republicans couto vote in favor. thank you very much. in alabama now prayers for a little boy held hostage and for
